HTCondor supports Google CE since 8.1.4 and this support is also available in 8.2+
Request from Gabriele ...
From: Gabriele Garzoglio Subject: GlideinWMS feature request: support for Google cloud Date: July 30, 2014 10:38:00 AM CDT To: Burt Holzman Cc: Parag Mhashilkar, Steven Timm, Michael H Kirby, Tanya Levshina, Gerard Bernabeu Altayo Hi Burt, I'd like to request for glideinWMS to support running jobs on Google Cloud. HTCondor now supports Google, as per the ticket below. https://htcondor-wiki.cs.wisc.edu/index.cgi/tktview?tn=3833 We would like to experiment with this early in FY15, although we have flexibility in the schedule. For this request I'm wearing my hat as SCD / GCS stakeholder, although FIFE might be interested as well. Please, let me know if you have feedback on this or if you want me to enter this request in some system. Thanks Gabriele

One the students, Flavio Giobergia, who is working with Steve Timm made progress and can manage glideins using HTCondor. This is a good time to look into Google Cloud more seriously.

In the current format, userdata is passed to a gce instance in key=value format which is completely different than other clouds that work with a blob of string. This changes the format of userdata across the board for all cloud types. This alone is a good justification for adding this functionality as Glideinwms v3.3 and will be backwards incompatible with v1.x versions of glidein-vm* rpms

I have made required changes to the factory+frontend to support GCE and GCE auth file. It is a prototype and there might be some changes expected in future. Given that these changes breaks back ward compatibility it will be merged into master and released as part of v3_3. This branch also includes changes made as part of #13484
